Windows 8 consumer preview released last week has start screen as one of the main features. The screen screen has some customization options available in Windows 8 personalization section. But some of the customization options including adding a background image to start screen, changing the colors or the number of tiles were missing from the personalization options. My WCP Start screen Customizer is a freeware tool for Windows 8 to customize your start screen.
You can simply click on the image and change the background wallpaper of the start screen. Your background image should ideally be of size 3500px X800px. You can change the tiles color, common colors etc.
